This is a comprehensive mid-level paperback text that takes a theoretically balanced, student-centered approach to social problems. It is unique in that it progresses from a micro- to macro-level of analysis, focusing first on such problems as health care, drug use, and family and then broadening to the widening concerns of such topics as population growth and conflict around the world. The text is also distinctive in that every chapter defines the nature of social problems in a global context as well as a U.S. context. Its micro- to macro-level of analysis is also present in the way it explores social problems and enables students to apply what they learn to themselves. On the macro level, the text explores each of the three major theoretical explanations, describes the consequences of the problem, and provides alternatives solutions and policies. On the micro level, pedagogical features such as The Human Side and Self and Society enable students to understand social problems and see how what they learn applies to themselves. This dual approach enables students to learn about social problems in a unique organized manner that facilitates learning by making it more relevant to themselves on a personal level.
